Here’s a list of top job search articles I’ve written in 2022.
Popular headlines in 2022 talked about “The Great Resignation”, “Quiet Quitting” and “Career Cushioning”. While these catchy phrases caught attention, they really were nothing new.
People quit jobs all the time. Especially when they feel taken advantage of or dislike their work. So the great resignation happened because workers were confident enough to speak with their feet. And quiet quitting just means doing the work you are assigned. Career cushioning simply means having a backup plan in case your job goes away.
The basic job search process hasn’t changed much – you look for a job, interview, and accept an offer. What has changed over this year are the strategies used to uncover jobs, salary transparency, and the options for flexible work. And the large number of people looking for new jobs means more people turn to the internet for help and advice navigating the job search process.
Back when I started Career Sherpa.net there were very few online articles for job seekers. Today, it seems everywhere you turn, someone is sharing a TikTok video or posting on LinkedIn with job search advice.
